  • Future generations of business students a profound learning experience with real-life challenges and international exposure;
  • Our scholars the opportunity to do ambitious research to help us better address key business and societal challenges; and
  • The School the possibility to engage and serve alumni, corporations, policy makers and society at large

Tradition of support

The School of Business would not exist without the generous donations of our supporters in the late 1940’s when the Main Building in Töölö was built.

The supporters are commemorated in the lobby of the Töölö building, and we now wish to transfer this heritage to our new building in Otaniemi.


Leave your mark


We offer an opportunity for our supporters to be recognized in the new building through named seats in the lecture halls. The seats will be personalized with a brass plate with the donor’s name.

This recognition is offered to every individual who has donated or will donate, since the inception of Aalto University, a total of 1000 euros or more to business studies at Aalto University.

By personally naming a seat, you will continue to be a part of learning as the School enters an exciting new era.

Act quickly – there are a limited number of seats available, and tens have already been reserved!
